Product Defects and Product Liability

Life-altering injuries occur each year as the result of defective products.  While all accidents are unfortunate, these are particularly troublesome due to the fact that most of the injuries and deaths that result from defective products could have been prevented very easily.  In such instances, sellers, wholesalers, manufacturers and distributers are all held liable for selling defective and dangerous products.

Our trial attorneys will review your case to determine who is responsible for the injuries you have sustained.  In some instances, products have been designed defectively.  This means that anyone who uses the product can be injured.  In some instances, if these products had been fully tested, they would not have become available to the consumer.  In other instances, the issue lies in the manner in which the product was manufactured, which is known as a manufacturing defect.  Our lawyers can determine whether any party involved in the design, manufacturing, or marketing of the product acted negligently.

It is imperative that your lawyer retain a liability expert to opine whether the product is defective. The failure to do so may result in the dismissal of your case. The attorneys at Allingham, Readyoff & Henry, LLC., have worked with experts all over the country. Put simply, the top experts are not necessarily local. Our attorneys attempt to find the most qualified expert in the particular field.

Our lawyers have handled a wide spectrum defective products that include, but are not limited to: exploding lithium ion batteries, defective component parts in an all terrain vehicle (ATV), defective medical devices, injuries caused by foreign objects in food, and defective furniture (tables, chairs, etc).  Manufacturers are strictly liable for dangerous products that they make available for the public.  Our lawyers hold those manufactures and sellers of dangerous products responsible, while compensating the victim.

Please keep in mind that insurance companies and self-insured manufactures are incredibly difficult to deal with.  Their ultimate goal is to pay you as little money as possible.  Our trail attorneys work to make certain that our rights are not violated, while maximizing your compensation.  Before speaking with an insurance adjuster, whose job it is to protect the interests of their company and to reduce your claim, you should contact our lawyers to advise you as to your options.
